OBJECTIVE Our objective was to reveal the frequency and MDCT appearances of sternal variations and anomalies in subjects without sternal deformities. SUBJECTS AND METHODS One thousand consecutive patients who underwent thoracic MDCT examination were enrolled in the study. All MDCT data, including multiplanar and curved-planar reconstructed images, were(More)
Granulomatous mastitis (GM) is a rare inflammatory breast disease of unknown etiology. Although it usually presents with sinus formation and abscesses, it may mimic the clinical characteristics of breast cancer. The aim of this study was to identify the clinical, radiologic, and pathologic characteristics of patients with GM and to show the results of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of self-expanding nitinol stents in the palliative treatment of malignant dysphagia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty self-expanding nitinol stents were placed in 59 patients (43 men, 16 women; mean age, 55 years; age range, 23-75 years) with inoperable malignant stenosis due to squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus (n =(More)
Diagnosis of extrapulmonary tuberculosis is often difficult. Although positive chest radiographic findings or a positive tuberculin skin test supports the diagnosis, negative results do not exclude extrapulmonary tuberculosis. However, recognition and understanding of the radiologic findings of extrapulmonary tuberculosis can help in diagnosis. The spine is(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the CT findings of pulmonary artery aneurysms in patients being treated for Behçet's disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen patients with Behçet's disease who had a total of 46 aneurysms were included in the study. All patients underwent helical CT before and after treatment. Both initial and follow-up(More)
OBJECTIVES This study investigated whether diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values provide specific information that allows the diagnosis of solid or predominantly solid gynaecological adnexial lesions, especially whether they can discriminate benign and malignant lesions. METHODS DWI was performed in 37 patients(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearance of hepatic alveolar echinococcosis (HAE) on T(1)-weighted, T(2)-weighted and postgadolinium images. A total of 13 lesions were demonstrated in 13 patients. All patients underwent MR examination at 1 T imager. MR examinations included precontrast T(1)-weighted breathing(More)
INTRODUCTION The role of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) in patients with locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) with potentially sterilized axillary lymph nodes after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) remains unclear. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 2002 and 2008, SLNB with both blue-dye and radioisotope injection was performed in 77 patients with LABC whose(More)
Endometriosis, an important gynecological disorder of reproductive women, affects most commonly the ovaries and less frequently the gastrointestinal tract, chest, urinary tract, and soft tissues. Endometriosis classically appears on MRI as a mass with a large cystic component and variable signal intensities on T1- and T2-weighted images due to the presence(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to describe the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings of hibernoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated imaging findings of CT and MR examinations of six patients (three men and three woman, aged 27-48 years) with histopathological diagnosis of hibernoma. RESULTS On CT(More)
